Miami Lakes, FL - The Town of Miami Lakes, the Youth Activities Task Force and the Elderly Affairs Committee hosted the Family Fishing Clinic on Saturday, June 22, 2013. The clinic took place at the Miami Lakes Optimist Park Marina. Over a dozen children and their parents received instruction on engaging in fishing activities safely and properly. Coordinating the event was Mayor Michael Pizzi, Councilman Manny Cid who serves on the Youth Activities Task Force and Luis E. Collazo who chairs the Elderly Affairs Committee.
